Maybe to have a more cautious approach we can use 2048 for normal mode
(suggested by Qualcomm for the babble issue) and 16384 when using
QMAP, as done by the Windows driver, adding a comment that higher
values (that should be only related to 5G chipsets) are currently not
supported.

I do not currently have the equipment to test with 5G, but using 16384
could not even be a problem since I doubt that the bottleneck for the
real throughput is the bus.

Moreover, we can face it once we are capable of performing throughput
tests and have indications on the behavior according to the different
sizes of the rx urb.

Sounds reasonable?

With 16384 we'll have 5 URBs with an high-speed modem and QMAP
enabled. That would usually be a configuration for low-cat modems,
while high-cat use super-speed or super-speed-plus, for which I
already tested that value reaching 1.1Gbit/s.

I can try to perform some additional tests with rx_urb_size=16384,
QMAP and low-cat, but it will require more time.

Ok, understood.
